I tried the IronPython route a few months back and I faced the problem that 
python doesnt have native namespace and ironpython provides no way to 
generate namespaces. I was trying to write a filter for which I had to create 
a class in a specific namespace. Someone in the IP mailing list replied that 
its in their todo list; he didnt sound too keen to get that feature 
implemented though. I dont remember the reason for requiring a namespace but 
it had to something with loading of clr assemblies. I dont know if this 
problem still persists but you might want to keep this in mind if you are 
trying to write backends/querydrivers in python.
